I have written many symptoms out and given them to mom's PCP. I plan to give them to the neuro as well. Hoping to get a diagnosis, if even a general dementia or alzheimer's one. Coming from a specialist seems like it would hold a bit more weight. I suspect vascular dementia, frontotemporal, or alzheimers. I know they may not bother to try to get specific, but just want a specialist to give their input as she has been closed to meds for depression, anxiety, memory loss (which is her choice, but seems like a diagnosis MAY at least help her see her need for living in the assisted living facility, though reason often doesn't work either). Anyone have suggestions for this visit? I live in a different state so I hope I can get a better idea what we are really dealing with while I'm visiting so the assisted living facility and I know how to support her better. I know that there are no miracle cures for dementia/alzheimers, but would like to get a diagnosis.
